Verizon's official Droid support website has been updated to note that owners of the top-selling Android device will finally get the awesome Android 2.2 update next week.
It had been speculated that the Droid would be getting the noteworthy update in early August, but this is the first time it has been officially announced by Verizon.

Android 2.2 brings with it, among other things, improved performance and efficiency, a minor graphical update, and one of the most important additions - the ability to use the phone as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot.

The new version of Google's mobile operating system is currently only available to owners of Google's own in-house developed Nexus One, but it will be rolling out to Sprint's Evo 4G very soon, in addition to the Droid. The Droid X is also expected to get the update next month.

The majority of Android phone will be getting the update to 2.2 eventually, although some of the less capable phones, as well as some of the very first Android handsets, will not be compatible with the new version.
